Claire Hooper selected for Sea-change residency
23rd June 2011

Picture This , Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN), and Lighthouse, are delighted to announce that award-winning artist Claire Hooper has been selected for the Sea-change residency.

Sea-change is a three month residency for London-based artists to produce new work. The residency is a unique opportunity for artists to develop new moving image work in a supportive and creative environment at Picture This.

Sea-change is for artists working with the moving image who stand to benefit from a dedicated period in a focussed environment. The residency will allow Hooper - recipient of the 2010 Baloise Art Prize - to produce a new artwork,
Eris. Hooper was selected for Sea-change from almost 60 applicants. She will be provided with a studio within Picture This and will work with a professional production team plus production, post-production and exhibition facilities. Sea-change will also provide Hooper with a production budget.

This year Hooper will enjoy solo shows at Lothringer 13, Munich and MUMOK (Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig), Vienna. Her previous work has been screened and exhibited at national and international venues including: the Serpentine Gallery, Sketch, Jerwood Space, Art Basel and IT Park gallery, Taiwan.

Maggie Ellis, Film London's Head of Production and Talent Development said in regard to the selection of Claire Hooper for the residency: "I am so pleased we have been able to continue offering this residency - it offers artists the professional environment and support they need to reach the next step of their career and it achieves fantastic results. In Claire I believe we have found a wonderful artist with so much talent and ambition. I'd like to thank our partners Picture This and Lighthouse, without whom we simply wouldn't be able to continue offering this innovative and unique support to artist film-makers."

Selection Panel: Rose Cupit (FLAMIN), Jamie Wyld (Lighthouse), Ali Roche (Picture This), Cylena Simonds (independent curator)
